    I don't contribute to this thread very often, but this week it could only be the Old 5X from The Project Brewery (gypsy brewing who knows where): "Genuine dark stock ale in cask since April 2022. Made with a complex grist of pale, brown, amber, crystal and chocolate malt. Expect dark fruit, fig and treacle with a vinous sherry like finish."


    Found at the Tonbridge Juddians Rugby Club beer festival from the clubhouse bar on handpump. Half pints only in exchange for 2 tokens (i.e. £4.40).

    This week:

    Roman Way Senate Gold
    Growling Dog (Nethergate) Raspberry Milk Stout*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*

    BOTW Growling Dog Raspberry Milk Stout. As per the name it's rich, creamy and fruity with notes of coffee and chocolate and a distinctive rasperry aroma and flavour. Packs a punch at 6.5% and the raspberry becomes quite pronounced on the third pint.
